This will be Morant’s first game since March 3rd, when the Grizzlies played the Denver Nuggets, after which a video emerged of the star point guard appearing to flash a gun at a nightclub while streaming on Instagram Live, with the NBA and commissioner Adam Silver handing him down an eight-game suspension for his actions.
Ja Morant apologized once again for his actions ahead of his return
On Tuesday, the two-time All-Star player apologized once again for his actions in Denver, in his first time speaking publicly after his suspension was served and said he’s completely sorry for his behavior.
“So, you know, my job now is, like I said, to be more responsible, more smarter, and don’t cause any of that no more,” the Associated Press quoted the point guard.
While Morant added his status for the game againts the Houston Rockets this Wednesday, the Grizzlies head coach, Taylor Jenkins, said he anticipated the star player to play in the game.‘
